ASUU agrees to call off strike as FG offers N70bn

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has consented to suspend its eight-month strike.

The union (ASUU) agreed on Friday late evening during a gathering with the government group drove Chris Ngige, priest of work and business.

The government likewise consented to collect the all out cash offered to ASUU to N70 billion.

The union had left on an uncertain strike in March over non-execution of arrangements and goals the government came to with it in 2009.

It had also opposed the adoption of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) while presenting its University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as an alternative.

The union has had several meetings with the federal government since the strike commenced but no agreement was reached.

The federal government, however, bowed to pressure last week as it offered the sum of N65 billion to ASUU so it can call off its industrial action which has grounded academic activities in the public universities.
